The Six Gentlemen of K-pop group BTS in New York are providing an unusual fanfare to the stars at the United Nations debate. They submitted a video for their single “Permission to Dance” which was filmed at the United Nations Headquarters.
It is a meeting of older and more powerful men – the United Nations General Assembly in New York. These are the days of speeches and diplomatic meetings. But there’s also a bit of sparkle this year. Shortly before the public discussion, South Korean Prime Minister Moon Jae-in made members of the world-famous K-pop group BTS “the President’s special envoy for future generations and culture.” Her first mission: escorting Moon to New York. On Tuesday, the United Nations presented the band’s music video for their song “Permission To Dance,” which was recorded at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
The Seven, which was founded in 2013, topped the US singles charts last year, according to Billboard magazine, with its song “Dynamite” as the first South Korean band. In July, the band climbed to number one in the US for the fifth time with their single “Permission to Dance” – Michael Jackson last hit so many hits in such a short time, according to Forbes, in 1988.
